In addition to all UCSF users, this type of space is visible to all users at universities in the User Accounts table above and users who have a guest MyAccess account.
Private spaces are invisible to anyone who has not been given access permission. They don't appear on other users' Dashboards or in search results.
Please note that while the wiki is a free service offered by the library, it is intended to be used for active collaboration. If your space has not been updated for over a year, we will notify you that we intend to remove the space and offer you options for archiving it in PDF or HTML format.
